The 34-year-old comic star, pictured, who is set to marry California Gurls hitmaker Katy Perry in the autumn, and his friends will be the "merry men" at the bash, held to mark the end of a man's bachelor status.

He explained: "I'll do adventurous things and activities. My friend who is my best man says we're going to go white-water rafting and shoot arrows.

"We'll be like merry men. Perhaps we'll become outlaws, bandits for a while."

The Get Him to the Greek star - who proposed to Perry in December after a three-month whirlwind romance - is also "not worried" about the best man speech his manager Nick Linnen will deliver on the big day.

He said in a British radio interview on the Capital Breakfast Show with Johnny Vaughan and Lisa Snowdon: "I'm not worried about the best man speech - that's for Nick to worry about.

"Nick has stopped me from doing some seriously stupid things in my life, which could have made it a lot worse. I trust him completely. There isn't much more he can say that people don't know about. I took drugs and I slept with prostitutes."

Russell recently admitted he had been asking his famous friends, such as former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher, for tips on how to keep his wife-to-be happy.

He revealed: "I asked Noel how to get by in a relationship and he said, 'Just say yes to everything they say'. It works, I've been using that system and it's working well." - Bang
